Bomb Technician: Accused Aurora Theater Shooter Set up Dangerous Explosive Device at Apartment
Accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes rigged his Colorado apartment with a frying pan, thermos, remote-control car and dangerous chemicals in hopes that it would blow up when law enforcement arrived, NBC News reports.
The revelation was made Tuesday during the murder the trial for Holmes, a grad-school dropout.
According to a bomb technician who took the stand, Holmes rigged the equipment so a series of explosions would have spread flames through his apartment when his door was opened, NBC New wrote.
A trip wire led from the door to a thermos, which was to spill glycerine on a frying pan filled with potassium permanganate, NBC News reported.
If the two combined, a quick-spreading fire with explosions was almost certain, the technician testified.
